April 20, 1936 July 24, 2010
There are condolences waiting approval on OLIVER's Tribute wall
Oliver (Ollie) Brown was born on April 20, 1936 in Calvert County, Maryland to the late Warren and Emma Brown. Oliver departed this life on July 24, 2010 at Calvert Memorial Hospital.
Oliver attended Calvert County Public Schools. From early age he attended Patuxent United Methodist Church. Olivers work career began at an early age assisting his father and brothers on the farms in Calvert County.
Olivers first job away from the farm was detailing cars at Dorsey Gray Ford, that work experience lit a fire for his love of automobiles. Oliver sought other employment working as a laborer for many years in Labors Local # 74. However he could never get rid of that love for automobiles. Subsequently Oliver started his own Auto Detailing Shop in Forestville, Maryland.
Olivers detailing career afforded him many opportunities to design and build his own custom cars. In 1974 Oliver organized the first auto show held in Calvert County; from that first auto show he sponsored numerous auto shows throughout the metropolitan area.
Oliver was a member of the Metro Corvette Club and the World of Wheels. Oliver loved clothes his favorite color was purple and green, if there were 20 shades of purple and green you can bet Oliver had it in his closet.
Oliver loved to eat on weekends; he would visit his sister Kizzie knowing that she would have half of Bowen Grocery Food prepared for his Sunday dinner.
Oliver leaves to mourn two brothers, William McKinley Brown (wife Vivian) and Joseph Brown (wife Glenda). Three sisters, Irene Wallace (husband James, deceased), Kizzie Jones (husband Arthur, deceased), Willie Mae Cook (husband Irving), four sons Anthony, Keith, Tyrone and Matthew, two daughters Carolyn and Marie, grand and great-grand children.
Oliver was preceded in death by his parents, Warren and Emma Brown, four brothers, Wilford, Warren, Robert and Leroy, three sister-in-laws, Mary Bell, Pearl, and, Edna and two daughters Ann and Missy.
Oliver also leaves a host of nephews, nieces, relatives, and friends including a very special sister-in-law Vivian Brown, nephews Les and Larry Brown and a very special friend Thelma Sutton.
Oliver believed in, accepted and loved God. He never missed the Sunday MorningGospel program on WHUR.
